-organized fringe of radical birthers, the election of a black president doesn't tell us much about the structural barriers that continue to face the vast majority of black citizens. it doesn't tell us much about the narrow arena of electoral arena for black candidates. maybe you've noticed there's not one african-american in the united states senate. we're called 2008 with an open seat race. unpopular wars, a crushing -- a nation that was crashing in terms of the economy and exhausted the with the incumbent george w. bush opened the door wide for a democrat to win. throughout american history, race has been a disqualifier even if favorable, political circumstances. not in 2008. overall, american voters did not -- this is meaningful if imperfect progress. in three days, we'll learn if america's first black president will be re-elected. the conditions are very different this time around. he is the incumbent, the economy is still limping and it may be harder generally to win reelection of our previous 42 presidents. only 16 were elected to two terms. if america doesn't choose president obama again,
-- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this was unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> you know, chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it, i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say, yes, they were bought off that, obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victims who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. it just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant, and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying, hey, don't let the car elevator door hit you on the way out. >> let me go
's "hardball" for now. thanks being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. republicans are trying to reinvent their image with minority voters. don't let them fool you. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> we don't win elections by insulting voters. >> republicans continue to insult voters. congressman luis gutierrez and michael steele on the republican chaos that plays right into the hands of the democrats. >>> progressives stay on offense. over the fiscal cliff. >> we're going to make some of our colleagues here an offer they can't refuse. >> republicans just keep laughing. >> it's a joke. a joke. >> e.j. dionne and ruth conif have the latest on the fight for the middle class. >>> richard wolffe on another disastrous day for senator john mccain. >>> and first, it was papa john's. now denny's is serving up a grandstand breakfast on obama care. good to have you with us tonight. the republican party has an identity crisis. african-american and hispanic voters have been told they were bribe by their v
hymn standing with a bunch of mannequins they use as a firing range, three of them and then him as the fourth without his shirt on like the manny kins it wasn't meant to be sexual it was meant to be funny. it wasn't interpreted as anything inappropriate according to this person. as for the agent, now that his name is out there, it makes sense about why he called initially a congressman from washington because frederick hump fridays 16-year veteran of the cia, worked in washington state there in 1999, had a big patrol play in investigating the millennium bomb plot against the l.a. airport and he knew the congressman from washington, that he called because that congressman used to be the sheriff there it would make sense he would call that congressman here raentsecently he thought the investigation was stalled. details are falling into place. >> tell me about the house intelligence hearing today. trying to get more information about the benghazi events and general patreaus is meeting with lawmakers in the house and senate tomorrow. >> we are unable to know what is being said becau
the election was you know, well, you know, they elected both the president and us. today they were talking about revenue's on the table. they were talking about, well, we think we can work this out. it was a much different tone than we saw in those earlier statements that we just showed. >> right. well, i ththink they had to sho some toughness for the people in their caucus but they know what the underlying reality is. that helps explain the tone. there's just nothing like winning an election, a lot better than losing an election. you saw that, with all the republicans running away from mitt romney who tried to explain the 47% comment in these latest comments, they just ran away and said that's not us. >> you've had republican leaders out there talking about, do you really want to go to the mattresses over this issue? do you really want to lose the country because you want to fight for these really high bracket tax breaks. >> even "the wall street journal" han editorial, the editorial board at the journal seems to indicate that the gop should take a deal now. "wall street journal." let me
recognizes is a problem just yet. how long can they continue like this? that does it for us tonight. we will see you again tomorrow night. now it's time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." >>> mitt romney got caught once again saying what he really thinks today and in a "last word" exclusive, we have the "new york times" reporter who heard him say it. >> i care about a hundred percent of the american people. >> mitt romney's press conference called. >> it's not their fault, it's somebody else's fault. >> obama, romney argued, had been very generous with black, hispanics and young votevoters. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout, especially in the urban areas. >> paul ryan lost his hometown. >> he lost his hometown -- >> which is not a particularly urban place. >> they voted against him twice. >> losing never feels good. >> president obama will hold his first press conference -- >> to discuss the looming fiscal cliff. >> will the fiscal cliff be the number one conversation piece? >> there's only so much we can say about this fiscal cliff/slope. >> i argued for a balan
you with us tonight. the republican party has an identity crisis. african-american and hispanic voters have been told they were bribed by their vote for president obama. this is not a winning message for republicans. now or in the future. mitt romney was the big loser for the republican party and he's now thrown the gop into turmoil as he rides off into the sunset. once again, romney was recorded telling his big donors what he really thinks about americans. >> what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> extraordinary financial gifts. msnbc can't confirm the authenticity of the recording although we do not know when the call was recorded. romney went on to explain why he believes minority voters chose president obama. >> what the president did is he gave them two, two things. one he gave them a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. number two, put in place obama care which basically is $10,000
he ever wished us to know. jack kennedy, elusive hero is now in paperback. hope you get a chance to get it, read it, and for the first time understand. it's the kind of book you want to read at this time of year especially. we need heroes. we can give thanks that here we truly had one. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the gop's romney problem. there have been some strange responses to the republicans' election loss. but none has been more cynical than that from willard mitt romney. and it has hit his party hard. romney's claim, caught on tape, that the president won the election because of gifts to minorities and young people has made a bad loss even worse for republicans. portions of the tape were posted online, though msnbc doesn't know exactly when the call took place. >> what the president -- president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then
tomorrow. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show," from new york. president obama went to bat for the middle class today and mitt romney is still beating up the 47%. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got one mandate. i've got a mandate to help middle class families and families that are working hard to try to get -- that's my mandate. >> the president draws a line in the sand for the middle class. >> the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle class hostage? >> and gets as angry as you will ever see him taking on an old bitter foe. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> tonight, congressman tim ryan of ohio on the president's middle class rallying cry. jonathan alter on the epic throwdown with john mccain. >>> plus, the new senator even nate silver didn't see coming. >> we missed the north dakota senate -- >> yes, you did! >> heidi hitekam
money. >> what did obama give us? oh, bag of weed. >> very serious proctology exam. >> certainly the break in at the watergate hotel was not nearly as important as failing to define a terrorist attack. >> this morning four-star general david petraeus talked before closed door intel hearings on benghazi. >> he essentially is a citizen now and can let it fly. >> he thought all along he made it clear that there was significant terrorist involvement, this and is not my recollection. >> he also knew he was under investigation by the fbi, speaking of general petraeus. that's the big question. >> then the president is saying i didn't know until two days after the election. >> i have to say this, that speculation is absolutely reckless and it has no fact base at all and it really is a disgrace to a man. >> haen days are, indeed, here again. ♪ >> after a hard-won re-election fight, it's been a high-stakes return to the business of governing for the president of the united states. today he hosted congressional leaders at the white house to begin working on what he called the urgent busin
and republicans and so i think all of us have responsibilities to see if there are things to improve on. and i don't exempt myself from needing to, you know, do some self reflection and see if i can improve our working relationship. there are probably going to be still be some sharp differences and as i said during the campaign there are going to be times there's fights and i think those are fights this need to be had but what i think the american people don't want to see is a focus on the next election instead of a focus on them. and i don't have another election. and, you know, michele and i were talking last night about, you know, what an incredible honor and privilege it is to be put in this position. and there are people all across this country, millions of folks who worked so hard to help us get elected but there are also millions of people who may not have voted for us but are counting on us. and, you know, we take that responsibility very seriously. i take that responsibility very seriously. and i hope and intend to be an even better president in the second term than i was in the first. >>
of times square, new york city, just getting going. with us on set, msnbc contributor, put that in quotes, it's up for debate what he contributes, mike barnicle, richard haass, chairman of deutsche inc., donny deutsch and cohost of "the cycle," s.e. cupp. it's not really new. >> it's old now. >> you know what i contribute? i contribute some insight into the growing ego mania that is young willie geist. >> yes! >> the 37-year-old sexiest man on earth? >> what? >> oh, wow, we're doing this 40 seconds in, huh? >> "people" magazine. >> getting it out of the way. there he is. willie geist listed as the sexiest 37-year-old man in america. >> i'm titillated. >> it's not just me saying it anymore, it's documented. >> where am i? am i on the right show? >> later today -- >> this is why i got up early? >> later this morning, we are going to have the new editor of "people" magazine here, helen keller. >> oh! >> that's cruel. >> ba dumb bum. >> long setup. way to go. donny's on there, too. >> donny's on the list, too. >> what was it, "50 shades of grey." >> i was in the decaying category. sexy and de

"the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> i'm so happy you had her on. we'll be talking about that later on in this show too. and that t-shirt is one for the smithsonian. >> it certainly is. there's no doubt. >> thank you, ed. >> thank you. >>> thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. in his first press conference after being re-elected to a second term as president, then president ronald reagan was asked if he had anything to say to the people in the country who did not vote for him and who did not feel that they were part of the reagan revolution. he was also asked about nancy reagan falling down and bumping her head right before the election. he said that she had a tender lump on the side of her head, but that she would be fine. in president clinton's first press conference, after he was re-elected to a second term, the president started to answer a question ab
, big guy. >> i'm out of here. >> thanks to you at home for joining us for the next hour. president obama was in new york city serving damage from hurricane sandy alongside new york governor andrew cuomo and new york city mayor michael bloomberg. in the immediate aftermath of the storm the president spent time in new jersey alongside governor chris christie. mayor bloomberg specifically asked the president to please not come to new york city at that time, so the logistics and security arrangements around his visit wouldn't get in the way of the immediate recovery effort. but now with two weeks or so gone by, the president today announced that he is putting a cabinet official, housing secretary, in charge of the federal level of the rebuilding efforts after the storm. and he made that announcement from hard-hit staten island. >> during difficult times like this, we're reminded that we're bound together. and we have to look out for each other. and a lot of the things that seem important, the petty differences melt away and we focus on what binds us together and that we as americans ar
is. there's no doubt. >> thank you, ed. >> thank you. >>> thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. in his first press conference after being re-elected to a second term as president, then president ronald reagan was asked if he had anything to say to the people in the country who did not vote for him and who did not feel that they were part of the reagan revolution. he was also asked about nancy reagan falling down and bumping her head right before the election. he said that she had a tender lump on the side of her head, but that she would be fine. in president clinton's first press conference, after he was re-elected to a second term, the president started to answer a question about the role of first lady hillary clinton in the second clinton term, before he sort of diverted himself into talking about just how damned tired he was. >> well, let me answer the question about hillary. i think what first lady will do is something that i think it will be consistent with what she's been doing, but we have not, frankly, we've been too tired to talk about it. yesterday, i'm emba
have with us tonight. thanks for watching. absence of arrogance. president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first new conference since winning the president once again pipts the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure for reelection. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. if there was one thing that everybody understood was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced responsible approach and part of that included making sure the wealth yet americans pay a little bit more. >> the president's plan with this whole game, with all the card out in the open and on the table. you nome what, think about this, the president could have said i don't want to do that, i think i'm going to cave in today. you don't have to worry ab
, the american people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up. we have fought our way back. and we know in our hearts that for the united states of america, the best is yet to come. >> good morning. and welcome to a special edition of "morning joe." it's wednesday, november 7th. the morning after the election. we're live from historic stud studio -- here's willie -- in rockefeller center here in new york city in front of a great, very awake studio audience. they're wide awake. what's wrong with you people? >> what's wrong with you people? >> have you been up all night? >> unbelievable. >> all right. well, there's just a little news to report this morning. president obama has won a second term in the white house. >> what? you're kidding me. >> this is huge. go ahead. >> around 11:15 last night, the networks put the biggest swing state of the election, ohio, in the president's column. pushing him over the 270 electoral vote threshold. and at this hour, the president has 303 electoral college votes to mitt romney's 206. florida,
went to all-out war there would be significant israeli losses. >> all right, general, would the u.s. get involved militarily if this does escalate? >> i don't think so. i think the iranians would be loathe to actually start firing their long-range missiles at israel. if they did that would be the ultimate red line and we would get engaged. my guess is they're going to cap this in one way or the other. clearly the provocation is coming out of hamas. and they are insensitive to their own civilian casualties. so it's a very tricky situation. but i think they back off at some point. >> you bring up iran. it has been suggested that hamas is triggering all of this back and forth try to divert attention to iran's nuclear program. does that make sense to you at all? >> yes. although i think there's a terrible malignancy in the gaza strip in the west bank and the hatreds that have been generated are literally multigenerational. that's independent. but i think the iranians have manipulated particularly hezbollah but also hamas. they've equipped them with significant amounts of rocketry. one o
before election day. we have with us mike barnicle, senior political analyst, mark halperin, willie's just walked in. i don't know why you're laughing. >> me? >> no, mike. >> this lighting is disturbing. i don't know who did it. i don't like it. i'm just going to say that right up front. but i'm happy this weekend -- today because this weekend there was a huge sporting event that all the world tuned to. and i can tell you i've never been more proud of the vanderbilt commodores, dudley stadium. >> no, they went on the road and did that. they went to kentucky, to commonwealth stadium. sure. 40-0, 5-4. mika, one more win and vandy's bowl eligible. look how excited mika is. >> that's amazing. >> midas. >> laugh it up. laugh it up. >> we are. >> when we're in the music city bowl, we'll see. and by the way, alabama, what a game. >> did they win? >> ha. that was an incredible game. >> that was a great game. and we just want to say, all the great people of the state of alabama, my heart is with you and i love you and i'm one of you, the entire state of alabama just wants to extend our arms
bringi brings us. president has start aid meeting with siveng leaders to talk about this economy. earlier today the president metaphmet for the first time with congressional leaders to avoid the fiscal cliff we talked so much about. both sides emerged saying they are willing to make one choices. the one word they all used to describe the meeting was constructive. >> our challenge is to make sure that, you know, we are able it to cooperate together, work together, find some common ground, make some tough compromises, build some consensus to do the people's business. >> to show our seriousness, we've put revenue on the table, as long as it's accompanied by significant spending cuts. >> let me bring in nbc news white house correspondent kristen welker. from those two sound bites alone, one would think things are a lot better than when this battle was forged before. >> reporter: well, i think that both sides feel a fresh urgency to get something done. you're absolutely right, tamron. they know they can't have the same sort of disastrous debacle happen that we saw during the debt ceiling fight
said is right. the american people are sick of this crap. they want us to concentrate on real things. >> now, wouldn't it be a logical question since it has been stated and confirmed, as you just said, governor, that eric cantor was told about this petraeus situation. wouldn't it be logical to ask did mr. cantor call the white house and say, "what are you going to do about this, are you aware of this"? why are they pointing at everybody except the one congressman we know knew something, their fellow colleague mr. cantor. >> the republican head of the house intelligence committee, congressman rogers, he didn't know. he should have words with eric cantor. why didn't eric cantor tell the republican head of the intelligence committee in the house. >> i served on the intelligence committee for nofour years in congress. this is what gets my irish up. there was a knucklehead who did this video that dishonored the prophet mohamed. >> right. >> there were protests all over the world in egypt, libya, tripoli and may or may not happen 400 miles away in benghazi regardless. but that's what susan
house correspondent chuck todd. thanks for joining us tonight. this was a hot pressure cooker press conference and you were in the middle. let's talk about the president's tactic. it looks like he's got one. here he is sticking out his message of defending the middle class today, sticking to it. he practically dared the republicans to hold tax cuts for the middle class hostage. he went back to that word hostage. let's take a look. >> the other option is to pass a law right now that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. i hope republicans in the house come on board, too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. the most important step we can take right now, i think the foundation for a deal that helps the economy, creates jobs, gives consumersty, which means gives consumers confidence they'll have consumers during the holiday season if we right away say 98% of americans aren't going to see their taxes go up. >> i thought that was pretty well crafted as a tactic. i don't know if it's a strategy.
sordidly delicious not to have us spending, us in the immediate yashgs spending some time figuring out what in the heck was going on here. i do have to say i really think there are a lot of important questions to be dealt with at the news conference beyond the petraeus matter. there's not a lot that the president can say or add to it. i know there's going to be some questions, but, please, can't we drill down on the fiscal cliff which is really a lot more important for the country? >> one thing, though, and, you know, with petraeus back on the schedule to testify again it's closed but hogan, the white house has stayed largely out of the petraeus fray and our own chuck todd saying on his show this morning that the obama administration doesn't really see petraeus as their guy. he served in multiple administrations has the backing of a lot of republicans but with him now testifying before the senate intelligence committee tomorrow is this where the white house could start to feel more the heat? >> absolutely. i mean, look, he was somebody else's pick but he did serve as somewhat of a sense of
governing. >> yeah. let's go to david. why would he use words like this. this is the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. this was unscripted. this is the pure romney. >> chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark and when i saw it i couldn't believe it. maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying to it play up to that crowd, that's what they wanted to hear. now when we hear him talk about voters he didn't just say he was bought off, that obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas. so they are the moochers, they are victims who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. so just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying hey don't let the car elevator door hit you on the way out. >> let me go to one thoughtful conservative. who i usually agree with. he's a smart guy. he writes for "the weekly standard." it seems to me that he has a pretty good point. he says romney's whole campaig
from across the country have joined us, have donated, sent food, and we want to say a heart-felt thank you to each and every one of them. let me say, mr. president, thank you to you, because you have empl fied the spirit of partnership and the spirit of community. i was personally amazed and touched by your phonal calls and attention even during times that were very, very busy. you were there for us. you were there for new york. we thank you, mr. president. together, mr. president, we will not just rebuild new york, we will build back better than ever before. ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. [ applause ] >> thank you so much, everybody. i'm going to be relatively brief. i came up here right after the storm, was on the jersey side, and i promised to everybody that i was speaking on behalf of the country when i said we are going to be here until the rebuilding is complete. and i meant it. so i'm going to come back today, but i'm also going to be coming back in the future to make sure we have followed through on that commitment. i want to thank the outstanding lea
behind us. as president obama publicly ponders what kind of help mitt romney could offer his team going forward, romney unloads to donors and why he thinks he lost. >>> and if one presidential rival isn't enough, the president butts heads with his 2008 opponent. delivering a tough message to senator mccain over congressional criticism for u.n. ambassador susan rice. >>> also, this morning, violence grows as israel and hamas look to be on the brink of war. we'll have the latest report on the ground. good morning from washington. it's thursday, november 15th 2012. this is "the daly rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get first to my first reads. president obama wanted to spend his first post election press conference showing he was ready to reach across the aisle. instead, he found himself on the receiving end of criticisms from not one, but two former presidential rivals. the president himself was loose, confident and at times aggressive trying to show he's in charge of these budget investigations. also to appear magazine 1/2 muss. magnanimous. he pledged to sit down with his rival governor
groups in exchange for their vote. what's the fallout and the future of the gop? with us, tea-party backed congressman raul labrador, tom friedman, former white house chief of staff for bill clinton john podesta, republican strategist mike murphy, and nbc news chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. >>> from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good sunday morning. with the president's national security team under fire over the petraeus resignation and the benghazi attacks, the president arrived on the world stage this morning for a summit in east asia, and he's got new worries on his mind about the prospect of a war in the middle east as israel and palestinian militants get closer to the brink this weekend. israel expanding its air assault against hamas and palestinian militants continuing to fire rockets into civilian areas of southern israel. that's where i want to begin this morning. i've got nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell and "new york times" columni
from the president about coming together and about using our communal power together often through the government. so what you heard from romney there, which was so really disgusting, was that his entire view of this is sort of just that it's an he can change. it's just a transaction. he's wrong on a bunch of other facts i'm sure we can get to, but to take a step back, the whole philosophy is a transactional exchange, nothing in there that's patriotic, nothing in there that's communal. >> nothing xas gnat. joy, romney seems to be confused by the fact that the lector yacht found him to be a liar, bankrupt of policies, and a man that the nation did not want to lead. the people chose against him. is there not something terribly ironic about a man blaming the electorate for ejecting him? >> it's not me, it's you. that's really what he's essentially saying. and i do agree with ari that sadly i think that mitt romney represents a few that is far more prevalent in the party than bobby jindal or that we would like to admit because there is a part of the republican base that does believe th
a good point. the president has to use capital. we need republican cooperation to get anything done in this country, important things. >> right. >> why rip off a scab and an open sore trying to build that cooperation? that's on the one hand. on the other hand, the president i believe, deeply believes that this is unfair but i think his first goal was to stand by susan rice's reputation and i think he did a pretty good job of doing it here. it would be odd to me if he fought this battle because it does have ramifications if he fought it and susan -- i mean s.e.'s right. i don't think we get 100% of the democrat votes unless the president wastes every bit of capital he has. >> on that. >> i agree with steve, we'll see her be nominated and this was a very passionate defense and it seems like standing up a bully and i guess the answer why to spend the capital, loyalty. known her for a long time and treated unfairly and i want to turn a little bit to the petraeus questions where we saw multiple times asked about the petraeus situation and the question comes back to when did the president
got including his highly paid staff in the campaign. everybody was happy with using money on that side. he assumes he must have been outbid. >> that's exactly what someone who thinks he can buy votes was in fact doing. this guy is a salesman, chris. he doesn't know anything about making decisions based on whether or not it's something you believe in. he is of the opinion that money can generate belief, and in this case he doesn't understand how money didn't generate belief, how in fact dedication and vision and love dedicated -- caused the movement in obama's direction, not money. >> it couldn't be that people believe in barack obama. it couldn't be that many people are devoted to him. it couldn't be that many people see him as in many ways potentially one of our great presidents. it must be a cash and carry situation. here are mitt romney's comments about obamas gifts, in line whiz earlier comments. by the way, karl rove must love this. this is covering karl rove. it's about the takers he calls them. remember that 47%? here he is explaining how you buy that 47%. they take, you give. l
's got to be one of the most fundamental takeaways from the election. >> joining us discuss all of this and more, republican strategic mark mckinnon co-founder of no labels which aims to get political leaders to stop fighting and start fixing. a lot needs to be fixed. i guess i wonder, as someone that has watched this election cycle, what you make of the ashes that have resulted at the end of it, which is to say, how does the republican party go on and what do they need to do from here? you see two various factions of the party, mitt romney on one side, someone like bobby jindal seemingly on the other? >> i come down squarely with governor jindal. the last thing the party needs to do is to be looking backwards, casting blame. there needs to be self-reflection and taking responsibility for the outcome, not blaming others. we need to expand the base. we need to be more diverse, tolerant. you know, romney's remarks show not only tone deafness but a flaw in his character, i think. and he didn't deserve to win if that's his view of the election and we had an outcome justified. the re
i'm glad you're up with us this morning. a lot to cover on a thursday, november 15th. we're going to start with that breaking news right now from israel. this morning, israeli television is reporting that three israelis were killed in rocket strikes in the southern region of that country. this comes as the israeli military has launched an aggressive campaign to cripple hamas after repeated rocket attacks. as many as 750 this year launched from gaza into southern israel. last night president obama spoke on the phone with prime minister benjamin netanyahu acknowledging israel's right to defend itself following but also urging netanyahu to avoid civilian casualties. hours earlier the israeli government posted this video from youtube showing an air strike yesterday in gaza that killed ahmed al jabari, he is the top military member of hamas. that was a widespread campaign against hamas targets that the israeli military had said it will broaden in the coming days. this morning israeli defense forces, the idf, dropped leaflets over gaza warning residents there to stay away from hamas ope
it in chicago the morning after traditionally when this is done. >> or even thursday. >> or even thursday u.s. exactly. >> although by thursday his national security team knew and was about to inform him about the petraeus possible resignation. >> all the reason they wanted to delay. >> let's talk for a moment first about the fiscal cliff. the business leaders who came in following, of course, the labor leaders and others who came in yesterday to talk about the bargaining and the terms of reference, what did he hear from the business community about what bargains points he should be making and how important it is or isn't to avoid the fiscal cliff? >> the business community wants certainty. that's what they care more about anything else. they want certainty. the question is going to be how much of an ally can they be to the president. he has a specific goal he has in mind. decoupling the bush tax rates if you will, for the wealthy, 250 for couples and above and everybody else. it's a bill that's already passed the senate. the president wants to get that enacted into law and then have the disc
at it. this may give us a better answer faster. that's ultimately what everybody wants to keep the americans safe abroad and in the future. >> is this part of the mccain and obama conflict from 2008? >> i think mccain -- right after obama was elected in 2008, mccain really extended an olive branch. he was very conciliatory with president obama. president obama campaigned a certain way in 2008, beat mccain talking about reaching across the aisle and didn't do that. so mccain from the get go was saying, hey, you said you were going to work across the aisle. now he's just calling him on the carp elt. no one is more outspoken than senator mccain. >> i want to talk about taxes and the fiscal cliff. the president said he wants taxes to go up on the well think. what's your thought here? what do you make of that? is he leaving room for negotiations on the deductions? >> well, not a whole lot richard. he was basically coming back with what the position had been earlier, using the $250,000 level. well, theoretically he's open to whatever possibility somebody ask come up with, but he cast
cliff. that was clearly the message to-o susan rice. john mccain used to have a lot of respects from democrats, including myself. i think that has all but evaporated. john mccain happens to be wrong on the allegations he's making. the comments susan rice made four days after the benghazi attack were perfectly and entirely consistent with the intelligence that she was getting from the cia. when we believed that the attacks were a spontaneous protest and reaction to the video. what we've learned since then was that two things may have been happening. one, the spontaneous protests could have been occurring while an al qaeda-like organization was also planning an attack and trying to take advantage of the unrest that occurred as a result of the video. so, both things could have -- both things are likely to have been accurate. but the fact of the matter is that susan rice's comments were entirely consistent with the intelligence that she was getting from the cia at the time. and republicans tried to scandalize her on fast and furious. it turns out they were wrong on the facts. they've gon
. the white house is leaning towards u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice to replace clinton at foggy bottom. rice's confirmation is far from assured giving the questions surrounding her handling of the attacks in benghazi. defense secretary leon panetta made it clear he is ready for retirement. senator john kerry, eyeing the secretary of state position may be asked to replace panetta. adding to the stakes of musical chairs, general allen's confirmation hearing to lead nato has been put on hold. during the campaign president obama called for nation building at home in his second term. he'll need to start by rebuilding his own team. john heilemann, you were a guest on the very first program of this show, there is a lot happening inside the president's inner leadership circle. how much of a problem do you think this is for him? >> first of all, let's not -- let's terry for a moment on -- i have been doing some math, 8,760, that's the number for today, 8,760 hours. >> wow. >> since alex wagner took over that chair and ever since -- >> subjected america to this program. >> and ev
tired, then i ask you to vote for change. help us win this. paul ryan and i going to bring real change to america from day one. >> joining me now is anne kornbluth and michael skirmonish and chris kofinis. we haven't had a chance to talk with you for a couple of days. your studio was affected by the storm, like so many who planned to vote in new jersey and new york. we'll get to that. what's your feeling right now? you sat back out of the media glare and digest this as a regular voter in some ways. >> i think that passion is the intangible. you can't measure. you can't poll passion. i buy into the numbers because they seem to be fairly uniform, that it's within a whisker on a popular vote contest. there's an advantage for president obama. the one intangible for governor romney is the level of passion xhfs on the president's side four years ago but is on governor romney's side come together. what does it mean? it means the president is a favorite going into it, but i wouldn't be surprised by any outcome come wednesday. >> let me bring you in on this, anne. everybody says they have the b
